    Honors and Grateful Thanks!!

    Today, October 25th, at approximately 1100 PST, I became the long awaited (4 years, 8 months, 3 weeks and 1 day - but who's counting?) "Distinguished Member" of the Defensive Carry (formally "Combat Carry) website. I would like to thank my wife, my mother, my father, my coach, Bumper, JD, QKShooter, PG Grass101,DukeAlmighty, ACT Timmy, Hopyard, P95, Thumper, Biker RN, AZ Husker, Azchevy, Retsup99, ExactlyMyPoint, PPK Heat, and Dr CMG, without whom none of this would have been necessary.

    It was a long journey but worth the fight and struggle. Oh, shut up.

    ps. apologies to all my virtual friends out there that I missed. I'm sure I'll think of a couple dozen more as the day progresses.

    Be sure to post a pic of your trophy when you get it. I opted for the cash.

    Ah, Hiram, left you off the list. I did get the sash and it looks awesome. Bold yellow with subtle "CCW Officer" in red. I have tears as I type this.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    As a distinguished member you are more likely to get extra special secret infraction points where newbies get a verbal warning since we are held to a higher standard,my last infraction got a warning from Bumper ,and IIRC was like a year before it drops off which may be this month.

    Welcome to the Wonderful World of Distinguished Member of Defensive Carry forum. Feels good doesn't it? The video on the super-secret handshake and pass words will be coming up shortly.

    At least it wasn't the Disturbed Member of DC that you were awarded!

    Deep apologies, Lima, I did cover your old man. Frankly, I thought you had that "deer-in-the-headlight" look this year from your own "newbie".

    Is it at least a little sad that I really am looking forward to getting more stars?

    It is what it is. We take whatever we can legitimately get.
